It was all in that screenplay; the humor was there, the heart was there. We had a pirate, we had a wizard, a farm boy, a princess, we had bickering robots and I thought – What’s not to like? – Mark Hamill

Brief Synopsis – Documentary that discusses the origins and influence of the characters of one of the most popular films ever made.
My Take on it – As a HUGE fan of just about anything Star Wars, I was quite happy to find this documentary which helps enlighten us even more as to the origins of some of the characters that we know and love from a galaxy far far away.
In addition, we also get insight into why the archetypes chosen for the characters works so well in this environment.
Loved the interviews with so many people connected with the series from both in front of the camera and from behind the scenes.
This is the kind of film all fans of the series must watch if they want to get more insight into it all.
Bottom Line – Great documentary that tells us so much about the origins of some of the characters in the series and why each archetype were the correct ones to use in the series. Amazing interviews with lots of people connected with the films both from behind the scenes and in front of the camera. A must watch for all Star Wars fans like me. Highly Recomnended!
